I've never had a .50 Remington or a Merwin Hulbert. The only Remington Army I've ever had a chance to shoot had been converted to .401 Special. And the Merwin Hulberts wern't available for shooting.

Most of these cartridges are too expensive to shoot anyway.

And the most unusual .45 ACP I've ever shot was a Colt 1860 Army converted under the Richards-Mason pattern. The owner knew nothing about the gun's history, he inherited it from a father-in-law or a step-father, but he knew enough to load the cartridges with Pyrodex.

One of the more interesting guns I've had the priviledge of firing.

I have never turned down an invitation to shoot a handgun!
